SOURCE: i have a wfs1071bd model

Hi, well this means that the Pump, may have something clogging it, or there may be a blockage in the pipes or maybe even the outlet pipe.
My professional recommendation, would be for you to contact the manufacturer or agent and ask them to call, when they call, ask them for a "Quote" before allowing any repair work to be undertaken.
However if you wish to DIY, then you need to remove the inspection hatch, and remove the hose from the Pump and clean it out.
You must have a service manual to do so, I have included the link below.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.

Pump / Filter cleaning POWER OFF UNIT UNPLUGED:

Basically you open the lower panel by pushing down and pulling toward you at the top. Use something like a cake pan for catching water. Grasp the CIRCULAR filter and rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the water starts draining. WAIT until all the water possible drains. Then unscrew the filter and pull it out. Clean out any debris. Make sure to reach deep into the filter hole and CAREFULLY clean off the sensor if you can reach it and then reinstall the filter by rotating clockwise. Last steps install the lower panel and PLUG IN POWER.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: Have misplaced manual for Whirlpool

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Manual first-
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
Now drain filter-
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C.

Hello Janine Gooch,

Went out on our internet trying to find your trouble shooting guide (typically in the OWNERS MANUAL)...

Finally ended up in AU ... No luck.
(September 9th is only 6 hours old here (SF Bay area)).

Your local peers have NOTHING NICE to say about that machine... particularly the CONTROL BOARD:

We have a Whirlpool WFS1071BD. We are on tank water (rain water), with resultant poor pressure. We're finding our washing is increasingly smelly (mould?). Is there anything we can do/put through to make it...


epsom salts are the only thing that makes a difference tried all the new gear doesnt work as good as epsom salts every two weeks 1/2 cup on hot wash with no clothes & use cold power advanced washing powder this is the best way of keeping control of it once you get it clean you have to keep on top of it the smell doesnt take long to come back with out continues treatment.
